Pulling Elephant | [mastadon] 💩 numbers out of your Sunshine | [little ray of sunshine] isn't a way to build credibility.

Quote:
The chances of a meteorite killing you are far lower than you think. Wired has the number at around one in 250,000


There's only 1 documented case of someone being hit with an meteorite in history. She survived with nothing more than bruising.

For the Only Person Ever Hit by a Meteorite, the Real Trouble Began Later | Smart News| Smithsonian Magazine[^]
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
--Zachris Topelius
